It was rumored that he made a racial comment. But of course no one said what the comment was and the only person to hear it was Brashear. Seems like a convenient way to justify a cheap shot.
And there was retaliation when Orr cross checked Ovechkins face. Orr got suspended for 5? games. I never heard if Ovechkin said something bad about Manitoban's to precipitate it.
